Class files are usually compressed and bundled into jar files.
Each class file is marked with a class file format version, which lets you know which JDK (Java Development Kit) it was compiled for. At offset 6 in the class file is a big-endian short that gives the major version number. You can display for the classes is in a jar with JarCheck.
